7 I I :lei 4 emzmace To anyone else four years may seem like a long time, but to us, the Seniors of '46, the days have passed much too quickly. We will never forget that eventful day, September 10, 1942, when we walked nervously up the stairs to our home rooms and witnessed our first day of high school. Our first important task as Sajoettes was to elect our class officers. Freshman A chose Gloria Cento, president: Winn Burton, vice president: Alice layne Doherty, secretary: and Dorothy Carroll, treasurer. Freshman B elected Mary Tracy, president: Mary Helen Sullivan, vice president: Mary Ioy Molumby, secretary, and Sara lean Sansone, treasurer. On initia- tion day we bore up very well under the severe penances of the sophisticated sophomores, and to show our sportsmanship We gave a Hallow- e'en party in return. We were well represented in all activities and did our part in supporting all school projects. To represent us on May Day we chose Alice Iayne Doherty and lean Ratican. In our sophomore year we decided to have one set of officers for both sections. With much enthusiasm we elected Lucia Foster, president: Mary Alice Wolff, vice president, Margie Boll, secretary, and Betsy Mullen, treasurer. We planned initiation day carefully and it proved to be very enjoyable. Gloria Cento, Margie Boll, Cynthia Colombo, Winn Burton, Marian Gittins, and Mary Marge Sullivan made their debut on the Varsity basketball team. Our sophomore 'maids for May Day were Lucille Bianchi and PQQQY Murphy. As juniors and upper classmen, we deter- mined to make the year very successful. We began by electing our efficient class officers: lean Smith, president: Cynthia Colombo, vice president: lean Ratican, secretary: and Pat Echele, treasurer. We gave a box-luncheon at Page Ten Iackie Nickl's house and a picture show at our little theater to raise funds for our big proj- ect, the Iunior-Senior Prom, which was held at the Coronado Hotel in the Club Caprice on May ll, 1945, with lack Field's orchestra. To represent us at the C. B. C. circus we chose Betsy Mullen. Our May Day maids were Kath- leen Bocklage and Margaret Natsch. On September 5, 1945, we started our last year at St. Ioe. For class officers we chose Peggy Murphy, president: Pat Echele, vice president: Alice Iayne Doherty, secretary: and Mary Ioy Molumby, treasurer. We began to raise funds for our annual The Academy. and our other senior projects by having cake sales, a raffle, and on November 14, our Senior Ba- zaar, which proved a huge success. We had four girls in the Christmas play. lanuary 30. 31, and February l, were the dates of our last and best retreat at S. I. A.: Father McShane was our retreat master. The Varsity team claimed many seniors and its captain was Gloria Cento. At the Horse Show we won ribbons galore. The Glee Club, which boasts of many seniors, was placed first in the annual Spring Festival, and this was another feather in our hat. May Day seemed extra special this year be- cause it was our last. Margie Boll was our beautiful May Queen and her senior attend- ants were Marie Iones and Barbara Quick. The Prom, a gift of the juniors, was held at Norwood Country Club and we will always cherish our memories of this evening. Now that our four years are at an end and we must say goodbye to our friends and our school, we cannot help but feel sad. We know we shall miss S. I. A. and that we will never forget it. Cur only wish is that S. I. A. will never forget us-The Seniors of '46.
